Google up 26 per cent in Browser Market

It's good news for the browser boffins down at Google, who polish Chrome on a daily basis, with the release of Net Application's stats for market share in November.

Chrome was up to 9.26 per cent of the browser market, from 8.5 per cent in October, an increase of almost 10 per cent of its user base. Safari was also up slightly, from 5.36 per cent to 5.55 per cent.

The biggest loser was Internet Explorer, down again from 59.18 per cent in October, to 58.44 per cent. Microsoft's browser has consistently been shedding half a percent chunks throughout the majority of months in 2010 (it's down from 62.12 per cent at the start of the year).

Firefox remained pretty much level, dropping 0.07 per cent, although it's down almost 2 per cent on the year. Chrome has nearly doubled its user base since January 2010, when it began with a 5.22 per cent share, and it clearly seems to be Google which most of these Firefox and IE users have migrated to.
